In mid-1942, as Rommel stood poised for his final assault on Egypt, British radio monitors in the desert were electrified to intercept a broadcast from Berlin. It implied that the Germans possessed a stolen American codebook which gave them access to the Allies' radioed military secrets. Could the information gained through this codebook be the explanation of the Germans' unstoppable advance? The reason for a naval disaster in the Mediterranean? How Rommel had gained his title - The Desert Fox?

...is the theme examined by Anthony Grey in this series of highly personal films.
Anthony Grey was the Reuter correspondent in Peking at the height of China's Cultural Revolution. He was arrested by the Chinese Government, as a political hostage, and held prisoner for 806 days.
"Two years of solitary confinement in China might seem to be a destructive and negative experience. Now perhaps the elusive positive aspects are becoming clearer in my mind. Undoubtedly my views of what is important in life have been radically affected by what happened to me".
In this film Anthony Grey draws on his experience of Peking, and an earlier assignment in Berlin, to explore what it means to be a free individual; and discusses with a number of people, among them Michael Stewart, MP, and Arthur Koestler, some of the political and social forces that can put an individual's freedom at risk.
